School.jpgCaptain Michael VandenBos is a dual track school (student population, 650), meaning both English and French Immersion programmes are available at this site. Our school doors opened on January 22, 2001 with a population of 435 students from grades JK - 8. Over the years, Captain Michael VandenBos has continued to experience growth in both programs. This year, student enrollment in both the French Immersion and English program sits at approximately 300 in each and our Full Day Kindergarten includes 90 students. Regardless of the program, teachers and students can be seen interacting collaboratively within the school environment.

The school and its community work together to meet the academic, physical, emotional and social needs of our students. Staff dedicate each day to providing effective academic programs, delivered in a safe, nurturing environment for all children. It is our goal for each student to be a cooperative and productive member of society, and to live by the Snowbird motto, Flying High For Excellence. Monthly assemblies recognize our students learning successes, leadership and citizenship. Parents play a very active role at Captain Michael VandenBos Public School. Strong partnerships between home and school are developed through a variety of ways. Our School Community Council, and numerous parent volunteers work cooperatively with our dedicated staff to help students realize their potential and achieve their goals. A true community atmosphere exists at Captain Michael VandenBos Public School.
